Intensive Care

When you need the best of the best this very second, choose Belmont.

Intensive care is a high-stress environment with medical personnel at the ready at all times to diagnose and act on any intervention your patients need. In this complex and rapidly shifting setting, admissions arrive from many different sources and each patient comes with a unique set of vitals and co-morbidities. Patients in your ICU require quick attention and decision-making. Staying calm and collected is far easier when clinicians have the best tools at their fingertips.

Make the Easy Decisions When You Can

Whether treating a post cardiac arrest patient, a gunshot victim, or a hypothermic patient, being prepared with Belmont solutions at your side means there’s one less decision for you to make in the heat of the moment. We bring simplicity to your complex ICU environment.

How We Help

Treating Post–Cardiac Arrest with Cooling Solutions

The clock is ticking in every aspect of cardiac arrest. Resuscitation and return of spontaneous circulation must occur within minutes. And to preserve neurological function, cooling must also begin within six hours of the cardiac arrest. Your staff needs to be able to start lowering the patient’s temperature with therapeutic hypothermia as soon as possible. The simpler the setup and the easier a system is to use, the faster a patient can be cooled. This is what CritiCool is all about.

Controlling Body Temperature with Allon® and CritiCool®

When patients survive extreme accidents, they may present with more than bodily injury. Thermoregulation may have been compromised begun its cascade of detrimental effects. Taking control of body temperature needs to be simple and effective.

With either CritiCool or Allon, you can easily and quickly manage patient body temperature. Lending simplicity and precision, both systems use a one-piece disposable patient garment that wraps around the patient’s body—covering up to 85% of the patient’s skin–to exchange energy efficiently—without adhering to the patient’s skin.

Treating Severe Blood Loss with “The Belmont”

When a patient could bleed out, you need a quick fix that you know works. The Belmont® Rapid Infuser RI-2 gives you an easy-to-use and dependable solution for warming blood and fluids quickly, precisely, and safely. Affectionately called “The Belmont,” our device can be found around the world and in the top 100 US hospitals—because critical care teams rely on us.

Testimonials

“The strongest evidence for the use of TTM, in adults, is for HT in OHCA for VT/VF, ICP control, and for normothermia in the neurocritical care population.”

— World Journal of Critical Care Medicine, Aug. 4, 2012

Testimonials

“Fever is common after a hypoxic-ischemic event such as cardiac arrest, and registry data have shown an association between fever and poor outcomes after cardiac arrest. The 2019 recommendation allows for either TTM with moderate hypothermia or TTM with strict maintenance of normothermia after cardiac arrest. With either strategy, monitoring of core body temperature and the avoidance of fever are paramount.”
